Radiation is a dynamic alternative fiddle rock band hailing from Southeast Wisconsin. A fusion of chunky guitar riffs, bright fiddle melodies and powerful vocals, Radiation fuses elements of Celtic rock, hard rock and alternative to push boundaries with their unique sound. At the core of Radiation are two sisters, Lily Black and Olive Fritz. Lily's mesmerizing vocals and masterful guitar skills form the band's backbone, while Olive's virtuoso fiddle performance adds an electrifying dimension to their sound. The deep-rooted connection between Lily and Olive as sisters transcends into their music, creating a magnetic onstage chemistry that elevates their performance. Adding depth and rhythm to the band is Tom Fritz, a seasoned musician who not only brings his skill as a drummer but also shares vocal duties with Lily.
